The Impact of Videos in Efl Classroom
AbstractThe aim of the paper is to investigate the impact that videos played during EFL classes as well as the learners’ improvement of the language. It is known that learning another language means learning another culture, traditions and gestures. Therefore, another approach is being used in different teaching and learning contexts. Most importantly, teachers involved in teaching languages should find different ways to offer students variety and increase their motivation in the EFL classroom. In the last century, in particular the last three decades, teaching methods have changed constantly in order to help learners acquire the desired knowledge, by having fun, too. The main emphasis was put in developing student communication skills. Nowadays, there are many different ways of teaching EFL and in particular, technology, which has enabled us to use numerous ways of teaching and learning a foreign language. Textbooks that are used to teach another language are full of pictures and animations which help learners to have an image while being taught. Besides, pictures and conversations, the textbooks used in EFL classes are equipped with recorded tapes of conversations and songs recorded by native speakers in order to help learners’ with their pronunciation. The participants of the study are students from a private Language School ‘’Oxford Studio’’ in Gjilan. Their answers show that they seem to enjoy watching videos in the classroom, and are motivated to discuss them afterwards with their teacher.
